Take a Trial Run for the ‘Big One’ with Camp Prepare!

Are you prepared to live on only the
contents of your disaster preparedness kit following a 9.0 Cascadia earthquake
or other disaster? Test your readiness by camping out in your own backyard (or at
a campsite) on the night of Saturday, August 6, for Camp Prepare!
Camp Prepare! is
a region-wide, coordinated camping event the whole family can participate in –
at a campground or in your own back yard. 
It’s a chance to take your emergency kit on a trial run before the ‘Big
Prepare for Camp Prepare!
Common items used for camping such as water, canned food, flashlights, extra
batteries and first aid supplies are just a few of the items that should be in
a disaster preparedness kit. While the Red Cross recommends at least a
three-day supply of food and water, larger disasters, like a Cascadia
earthquake may require supplies for several weeks.
How to participate:
